With over 1.3 million staff working in the NHS, and in-work poverty affecting one in eight workers before the current cost of living crisis emerged, our NHS people are undoubtedly being affected. We know that the rising cost of living is at the top of the agenda for our NHS workforce leaders.

This webinar will help you understand the financial challenges affecting our NHS staff and what you can do to support them.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation provided an overview of in-work poverty, CIPD shared the work it's been doing in this space and Newcastle NHS trust talked about what it is doing currently to support affected staff.

During the webinar, we also highlighted a range of resources that are available to support employers in the NHS.
